Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Ten Transmedia People - Spring 2012 Edition

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Ten Transmedia People - Spring 2012 Edition | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

By Simon Staffans, Monday, March 19, 2012

 

"Transmedia is a fascinating genre, as the imagination to quite an extent is the limit of how far you can go, how far you want to reach (well, imagination… and funds… and deadlines… and manpower… and other annoying variables).

 

This in turn means that new examples of transmedia rise to the surface all the time. Reactions and comments, analysis and case studies abound, from a great number of creative and intelligent people. Next to creating, developing and producing myself – i.e. learning by doing – this is where I find I learn the most about transmedia; from brilliant people all around the world...."

Transmedia Tuesday: Interview with Daniel Knauf About BXX Haunted - Mindhut - SparkNotes | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Reposting as a new trailer is up on Youtube!

 

Bxx: Haunted follows a team of paranormal researchers as they spend 32 hours investigating a purportedly haunted house. What makes the story so interesting is the way that it is presented. The viewer is given access to all 32 hours of the investigation on 16 separate cameras throughout the house. That’s 512 hours of footage dropped on the viewer’s lap right from the get-go. As you proceed you get the opportunity to unlock new documents and videos that provide additional background on the events of those 32 hours.

Andrea Philips on Transmedia Storytelling, Fan Culture and the Future of Marketing - Knowledge@Wharton

Andrea Philips on Transmedia Storytelling, Fan Culture and the Future of Marketing - Knowledge@Wharton | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Knowledge@Wharton recently sat down with Andrea Phillips in New York City to discuss the evolution of transmedia storytelling and how these narrative techniques are being used to engage consumers and find new ways to market everything from movies to consumer products.

 

Knowledge@Wharton: Let's start with a definition: What is transmedia storytelling?

 

Andrea Phillips: I've been sticking with [University of Southern California professor] Henry Jenkins' definition, which boils down to: one story over multiple media where each makes a unique contribution.

 

Knowledge@Wharton: Can you give a few examples?

 

Phillips: Star Wars, for example, is a hugely successful franchise [that is also] transmedia, because different parts of that universe are shown in separate works [each of which provides] a unique contribution. For example, in the films, you see Han Solo and Princess Leia fall in love. But if you switch over to the books, then you know that they ultimately get married and have twin babies. You see a broader picture of the same narrative if you consume multiple pieces of media in that universe....

POWER TO THE PIXEL:

 

By Rosie Lavan

 

In the last in our series of interviews with the sponsors of the four major prizes to be awarded at The Pixel Market 2012 in October, we talk to Michel Reilhac, Executive Director of ARTE France Cinéma, about the ARTE Pixel Pitch Prize. Every production team presenting a project at The Pixel Pitch is in with a chance of winning this prestigious £6,000 award, which the French broadcaster is generously providing for a third year running. Here, Michel explains ARTE’s commitment to its partnership with PttP, and why cross-media has weathered the economic storm.

 

Power to the Pixel: ARTE works very closely with PttP. Can you describe the significance of this relationship to ARTE?

 

Michel Reilhac: We consider Power to the Pixel (PttP) to be a leading transmedia advocate in Europe and the world. As ARTE has now set hybrid content as its core strategic reason for being and operating as a content provider, our partnership with PttP represents our will to be at the forefront of how hybrid storytelling develops. It allows us to convey to the industry the signal that we are committed to supporting this new form in the art of storytelling.PttP: In awarding the ARTE Pixel Pitch Prize, what qualities will the judges be looking for?

 

MR: We will be looking for truly native hybrid content, stories that are built from conception up onto different platforms, integrating the specifics of each platform to complement each other and enrich the whole story experience for the participant. The fuller and more complex the story experience for the participative audience, the better…!
